Yes, joke, and a poke at the inefficiency of Roomba vacs.

Looks like this new part of blast wall will slide up.

This is from where the wall was removed. Looks like it will project out from the blast wall. The gray primer gives it away as new, but what is it?

This is from the other side of the removed wall. Looks like hinges for the garage door I speculated about.

Edit, removed a stray 'd'

I think this is a mount for hydraulic cylinder that will raise part of the blast wall.

I think the wall will slide up. This might be the slider's guiding part (I guess the hydrolic system would be lower down or further back)

Could you elaborate a bit more. Not all of us use the abomination that is Facebook.

Looks like I accidentally snapped a photo of SpaceX robot that will be used on OCISLY.

You can follow the link without signing up. It's a discussion about upgrades to the SpaceHab facility at Port Canaveral.
You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

All I see in the facebook link is 2 pics of something being constructed/worked on under a tent. Is that where the beast is?
With ELV best efficiency was the paradigm. The new paradigm is reusable, good enough, and commonality of design.
Same engines. Design once. Same vehicle. Design once. Reusable. Build once.
